Create the overarching structure of your proposal.

Community Center Proposal Outline

Last week we began working on the creation of the Community Child Development Center proposal by developing activities to promote physical development.  In this week’s discussion, you have added to that by focusing on activities and toys that promote cognitive development.  In this assignment, you will begin to create the overarching structure of your proposal.   The focus of this outline to is to present as clear a picture as possible of your proposal so that you may receive feedback which will guide you as you create your final project. Please refer to the Final Project guidelines for more information on the Final Project as you prepare the outline of your proposal.  Using the PSY 104 Community Center Proposal Template, you are to identify all of the activities and objects for each of your five rooms. Remember that you have already completed three activities in week two, and your discussion this week will add an additional activity and a toy.  Be sure to incorporate those elements into your outline! You do not have to flesh out the details; the outline will just provide the blueprint for where you are heading.  Remember that each room must contain two activities and one toy or object.  Each room must address physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development.  In addition, each room must address at least one theme.  The outline can be formatted in bulleted points like this:

Paragraph 1

  • Identify the activity (all you need here is the title of the activity)
  • Identify the theory and/or research you will use to support the use of this class or activity (i.e Piaget’s formal operations, Erikson’s psychosocial development, etc)  You only need to identify it in the outline—not explain it yet
  • Identify which developmental domain(s)  this activity supports (physical, cognitive, and psychosocial)

Paragraph 2

  • Identify the activity (all you need here is the title of the activity)
  • Identify the theory and/or research you will use to support the use of this class or activity (i.e Piaget’s formal operations, Erikson’s psychosocial development, etc) You only need to identify it in the outline—not explain it yet
  • Identify which developmental domain(s) this activity supports (physical, cognitive, and psychosocial)

Paragraph 3

  • Identify the item
  • Identify the theory and/or research you will use to support the purchase of this item

Paragraph 4

  • Identify which theme(s) this room addresses: health and well-being, families and parenting, education, culture, and gender. Here are samples of how you might do that in your proposal.
